Hi everyone - I have searched on the forum but can't immediately find any advice so could someone advise please on the new AVG 8.5 as my PC keeps telling me the old versin 7.5 is about to be killed off! I have resisted in downloading any new versions until now as there has been quite a bit of negative reaction to AVG's recent new version so has anyone hit problems with this latest one and have they ironed out the problems people were experiencing. I have to do something sooner rather than later, so, as always, your advice would be invaluable.
I run a simple bog standard laptop with Vista and also have installed all the usual freebies suggested on this site. I hope the new AVG doesn't gobble memory as I have not got lots. If AVG is not a goer what would you suggest and how do I get rid of AVG and select another freeby. Sorry! questions questions, but this silver surfer need their hand held a bit!
click here and then downloaded AVG 8.5 which was a bit slow. Best bet would maybe to download but not run Avg 8.5 and save it to my documents.Then run it from there when you have deleted 7.5 version. Not got vista so can't comment on that.
Thanks both very much. I think I might go with Avast as seen quite good reviews from other forum members and will uninstall AVG. However, having a quick look at Avast I see it is free for 60 days and then you have to redo? Is this a problem/catch to get you to pay for its service?
Also should I uninstall first and then install Avast (or similar) very many thanks?
